Extra Extra! Nick Spengler on Edie Rhoads

23 Mar

Poet Nick Spengler recently took a break from his work as John Irving’s literary assistant in the solitary village of Dorset, Vermont, and returned to the Old North End for the Burlington Free Press, to catch up with Edie Rhoads, her daughter Amina, and me at the neighborhood cafe. I brought along some bookmaking supplies and Nick brought Aylie Baker, a Watson-winning photo- and audio-journalist. Her shots from the session are posted exclusively here at HoneybeePress.org! Thanks to Nick and the Freeps for shinin’ a light on a great new poet.

All right, now go buy the book at your local indie bookstore! At ten bucks it’s a steal! Think what the ultra-limited-edition, letterpressed Reinventar el amor is worth to Bolaño nuts on eBay now! The Day Bat is so there in thirty years. But buy it now to read it now, repeatedly. Then order a back issue of Salon 3 and read Nick’s fabulous poems there!
